Out of the Ordinary: Twelve Australian Methodist Biographies

Out of the Ordinary: Twelve Australian Methodist Biographies

This wonderful book acknowledges the skill and dedication of some of the lesser-known Methodist leaders whose contribution to the faith should be better known today. We benefit from their work and this book about them provides a message of hope
and encouragement.

All of the twelve biographies are expertly written. Cumulatively, they show the wide range of Methodist impact on Australian society. The editors make note of how the twelve were engaged as missionaries, preachers, educationalists, administrators, ecumenists, and social reformers. Methodists seemed to be everywhere and involved in everything.

Out of the Ordinary also says something about the prevailing open culture of the Methodist church; it gave scope to the participation of male and female, ordained and lay, white and black, all with different levels of formal education. God provided the inspiration and the Church provided the opportunity. They helped transform Australia.
